Don’t you just love being able to make cute yet practical items? There is so much satisfaction is seeing something you made being loved and used.
Living in Minnesota provides plenty of opportunity to make and use warm winter wear. I enjoy seeing my kids wear items that I have made and they love having things made for them. It is a win-win!
Headbands are so fun because they work up quickly and generally only take a little bit of yarn. In fact, I was able to use what I had left over from the Coco Crochet Cowl to make the Coco Crochet Toddler Headband.
Right now, all 3 of my kids, (18 mo, 3.5 yrs, and 5 yrs) all have roughly the same head size (is that normal?), so this headband fits all three of them, but the boys aren’t big fans and it is a tiny bit big on the baby since the toddler has worn it and stretched it to a proper fit for her head.
Maybe I need to design manly headbands for the boys. I’ll have to think on that….
Coco Crochet Toddler Headband
Red Heart Soft (Category 4 Medium Weight 5oz/141g 256yd/234m)
0.8 oz Red Heart Soft in Grape
I/9, 5.5 mm crochet Hook (see my favorite hooks on Amazon)
4″ = 14 hdc
2.75” wide by 18” around
hdc: half double crochet
FDHC: foundation half double crochet
dc: double crochet
The size of the headband can easily be adjusted by adding or subtracting from the foundation row just keep the foundation row as a multiple of 3 +1 or the starting chain as a multiple of 3 +2.
You will want to make the length of the headband an inch or 2 shorter than the measured head circumference to allow for stretch.
This headband does not have a lot of stretch so you’ll want to use the larger sizes in the range from the headband size chart as a guide for adjusting the size of the headband.
